Pudding Paint

We were in the mood for a little messy fun…so we mixed up some pudding, let it set, and went to town finger painting on the table!

We love pudding paint because getting a little in your mouth, as kids are known to do, is delicious and not scary. It’s sticky and sweet and so much fun to play in!

We used a basting brush, spatula, whisk, dough scraper, and small jelly roll pan to assist in our creativity.

Sometimes it’s okay to play with your food…What do you like to play in?

Your little guy is so cute and he looks like he’s having a blast with the pudding paint! I can’t wait to have kiddos of my own to do fun projects like this!

We totally need to do this at our house. The kids would think they’d died and gone to heaven. Did the table work better than a jellyroll pan?

I gave him the jelly roll pan just for fun, and I think it would inevitably get on the table, so might as well start out there…the jelly roll pan didn’t get much use. It was very messy, I should have put an apron on him or stripped him down. Lots of fun though!

Looks like a lot of fun. I like that you used the tools too–we always just used our hands.

Looks like fun! We’ll have to try that one. We like to play with colored sand. It is VERY messy so we do it outside. We make designs with glue and toss the sand on it to make pictures. They love playing with colored sand and they love that they can “paint” with it.

I can’t say I would have thought of this as paint but what a great idea! I can see setting out a whole range of flavors/colors and really letting him go to town! Thanks for the idea!
